Default Cardboard ammo boxes for 223

I have lots of 223, all loose. Does anyone know I can buy the 20-round 223 cardboard boxes like the one in the picture?

NO, I don't want stripper clips.

I can use about 400 cartons or more.

Wished someone made a 30-round box.

I'd just say grab 'em out of the trash cans at the shooting range. Most outdoor shooting range trash cans always have lots of empty boxes, and not much else, in them.

Those boxes are garbage to begin with, why not just buy some .223 plastic boxes that hold 50 rounds each. Easy to store and you can put a piece of tape and mark all the info on them you need

AHHHhhhhhhhhhhh............
All I am Looking for is the 20 cardboard boxes. 30 of them will fit the small ammo can. That's 600 rounds in a Small can. The large can holds 48 20-round boxes. That's 960 rounds.

That is why I want these small Garbage boxes.

Just store it in plastic bags based on what headstamp and weight they are. I have 2 different .50 Cal cans for that purpose. You will be able to get another 40 or so rounds into a .50 Cal can that way. Once the cardboard boxes rip or start to fall apart you will have to throw them out anyways. Plus it is a lot easier to open up a plastic bag with 100 rounds or more in it and load your mags than opening up 5 boxes and trying not to rip or abuse them.
